Le Vent du Nord
Date: November 17, 2012
The performance space at Le Lycee Francais de Los Angeles, Theatre Raymond Kabbaz, with the support of the Québec Government Office in Los Angeles, is pleased to present French-Canadian folk revival quartet Le Vent du Nord as part of its public performing arts series.
The highly-acclaimed band’s traditional Québécois music is heavily influenced by Celtic sounds. Characterized by authenticity and humor, sprinkled with a touch of romanticism, Le Vent du Nord (The North Wind) pushes its Québec roots in striking global directions with a breath of fresh, cosmopolitan air.
The band delivers catchy music with rich and varied instrumentation, well-polished musical arrangements, and wonderful vocals. Their traditional Québécois music, infused with Celtic sounds, brings together frenzied foot clapping, fiddle and accordion, merged with refined orchestrations, a savage-sounding hurdy-gurdy, superb four-voice harmonies in French, traditional airs, ballads, complaints and call-and-answer songs. $35 ($25 for students) // Theatre Raymond Kabbaz 10361 W. Pico Blvd. LA
